Cincinnati completes staff with Clinkscale

Cincinnati rounded out new coach Tommy Tuberville's staff by hiring Steve Clinkscale as defensive backs coach, the school announced Friday.

Clinkscale spent 2012 as Illinois' cornerbacks coach, and was at Toledo in the three years before that.

“I’m happy and excited to add Steve to our staff,” Tuberville said. “He has a reputation as a great coach and teacher of the game as well as being a strong recruiter. We are really looking forward to getting on the field next week with the start of spring football.”

Clinkscale replaces John Lovett, who is now with the Philadelphia Eagles.
